October 25–28, 2018
With acerbic wit and inspired originality, The Penelopiad is a contemporary take on Homer’s Odyssey – retold through the eyes of Penelope, the famously faithful wife of the Greek hero Odysseus. Literary icon Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale) flips the classical myth on its head and gives us a moving and darkly funny commentary on war and the women left behind.
